JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli officers assaulted a Palestinian family in East Jerusalem on Monday, a Ma'an reporter said.

The incident in Sheikh Jarrah was captured on film after a reporter happened to witness the event while driving through the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood.

"I saw Israeli police officers attacking members of the al-Ramadi family in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood of occupied Jerusalem. Police officers were attacking women with their fists and clubs and the internationally-banned pepper spray. Two women were evacuated to hospital," the reporter said.

The woman in the video, Umm Firas al-Ramadi, told Ma'an that she was attacked after trying to help her son, who was being harassed by police officers.

"I hurried to help my son, and they kicked me in the leg. I started to push them away, then they sprayed gas in my face, and I fell to the ground and couldn't stand up."

"There was too much humiliation. They attacked my wife with clubs and they kicked her until she fell to the ground," Abu Firas al-Ramadi said.

A spokesperson for the Israeli police, Luba al-Samri, is quoted in the report as saying that a young Palestinian man hurled stones in the area at an Israeli vehicle. She didn't comment on the attack on the al-Ramadi family.

What I see in the video is the police being attacked by Palestinians. The video does not show the woman attacking the police or how she got on the ground. If the article is right, she attacked the police who were lawfully dealing with her son. No more crocodile tears, please.

@ Rondo Mondo: Maybe you should watch the video again. It clearly shows the policeman kicking the woman (wearing brown clothes) at around 1:06min. The aggression and force against the woman is clearly coming from the policeman. Maybe you have a problem with your eyes?

Ro Rondo Mondo #1: ' If the article is right, she attacked the police who were lawfully dealing with her son. ' Did she start attacking their fists with her face? Do you ever realize how low Zionism leads you to sink?

to #2 I watched it again. The woman with brown clothes is shown on the ground at 0.34 minutes. Video does not show her knocked to the ground. At 1.06 all I can see is Palestinians trying to hit the police and the police responding. to #4 in Canada and the United States police men are entitled to use reasonable force, including hitting those you are obstructing police in their duties. The Perp was interfering with the police and her son. She fought the law and the law won.

Colin and Paul, Zionism leads to dementia because they cannot process anything they disagree with. For example the police officer clearly attacked the woman without. The zionist sees what he wants to justify the brutality they are trained to commit against unarmed civilians. Zionist police normally seek out children, women and elderly to attack because they dont fight back as much. israel is terror. Boycott Divest and sanction please.

To mk #6: 'WARNING! Zionism has been found to cause stupidity and blindness.' Zionism IS stupidity and blindness. How often do you encounter a Zionist who is either intelligent or able to admit facts?
